The Alps

With 'Alpine Club' Photo Galleryin our name, as you might expect we have organised several trips to the European Alps. In recent years, we have been to the Saas Valley in Switzerland, the Ecrins in France, the Dolomites in Italy, and the Stubai Alps in Austria.

Normally the club has one 'official' Alps meet in the summer, and members also go independently on non-club visits.Photo Gallery Once there, there are many games to play, walking, mountaineering on 4000m peaks, via ferratta, sport climbing, rock routes, etc. The club has both camped and used apartments in the past, making use of huts on longer or higher routes.

A trip to the alps is a must for an aspiring mountaineeer which can demand high levels of fitness and slick technical work, a chance to put those practiced skills to good use.
